Tuesday, 9 May 2017
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) today reported that two Closure Orders, one Prohibition Order and one Improvement Order were served on food businesses during the month of April for breaches of food safety legislation, pursuant to the FSAI Act, 1998 and the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010. The Enforcement Orders were issued by environmental health officers in the Health Service Executive.
Two Closure Orders were served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on:
- New Great Wall (takeaway), 31a Castletown Road, Dundalk, Louth
- New Century Thai and Chinese Take Away, 6 Prospect Road, Harts Corner, Dublin 9
One Prohibition Order was served under the EC (Official Control of Foodstuffs) Regulations, 2010 on:

One Improvement Order was served under the FSAI Act, 1998 on:

During the month of April, a successful prosecution was carried out by the HSE in relation to:
- Roma Grill (take away), The Crescent, Boyle, Roscommon
Commenting on the Enforcement Orders served in April, Dr Pamela Byrne, Chief Executive, FSAI said that all food businesses must comply with food safety legislation in order to protect consumers’ health.
“While most food businesses are committed to maintaining the highest standards of food safety for the health of their customers, unfortunately this is not always the case. Although, it is encouraging that there have only been two Closure Orders for the month of April, we are urging all food businesses to ensure that they have a robust food safety management system in place and that it is consulted on a regular basis and updated, where necessary, to ensure non-compliance issues and breaches of food safety legislation don’t occur.”
If food business owners are unsure of what is required of them by law, they can contact the FSAI Advice Line at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit its website or facebook page,” said Dr Byrne.
Details of the food businesses served with Enforcement Orders are published on the FSAI’s website at www.fsai.ie. Closure Orders and Improvement Orders will remain listed on the website for a period of three months from the date of when a premises is adjudged to have corrected its food safety issue, with Prohibition Orders being listed for a period of one month.
